I frequently find it difficult to come up with dinner ideas.  I get so bored having the same meals over and over.  Brandon doesn’t very often have input on dinner, so he is of very little help.  To my surprise he came to me the other day and said….

Brandon: Hey mom, I really wished we could have those noodles we had in Colorado with Dad at that one restaurant.

Me: (thinking I love how moms have to decipher their kid’s cryptic meanings) Ummm, what noodles? You mean the noodles that comes with your meal at Sakura’s?

Brandon: YES! I loved those noodles.  I wished we could have a giant bowl of them right now.

Me: Well, you do know I can just get a recipe from the internet and make them for you.

Brandon: You can?!? (eyes wide open in shock and amazement) Wow, that’s what we are having for dinner tomorrow night. Nothing else, just a huge bowl of those noodles.

Me: Do you not want some meat or veggies in it to make it more of a meal?

Brandon: Heck no. I only want a huge bowl full of noodles.

LOL, I love my conversations with my children.  I had never made these noodles before but I was for sure it was fairly simple.  I mean, at the restaurant they just throw the noodles on the grill and add a dark sauce one assumes is soy sauce and like magic you have Japanese Hibachi Style Noodles.  So I embarked on this mission for Brandon.  The result was fabulous according to my son.  He shoveled them into his mouth like he would never get more. I have to say, I did stir fry some chicken breast, onions and mushrooms and added them to my noodles.  It was quite scrumptious.  I used Smart Taste Thin Spaghetti as my noodles. I like these because they have extra fiber in them.  Below you will find the recipe for the Japanese Hibachi Style Noodles.  If you are like me and want more than just noodles for dinner, just stir fry a meat and/or veggie and add in.

 

Japanese Hibachi Style Noodles

Japanese Hibachi Style Noodles

1 Box linguine or noodles of your choice, cooked al dente

2 Tablespoons Sesame Seed Oil

1 Tablespoon garlic, minced

2 Tablespoons sugar

6 Tablespoons thin soy sauce

Sesame Seed Oil used for Stir Frying in wok

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Cook noodles ahead of time according to directions, al dente. Let cool then place in fridge until ready to cook. (I made my noodles the day before).
  • In a bowl combine Garlic, 2 Tbs. Sesame Seed Oil, Sugar, and Soy Sauce (I used Braggs Liquid Aminos in place of the Soy Sauce. Tastes exactly the same but has less sodium and better for you). Mix well
  • Over medium high heat in a wok, pour in small amount of Sesame Seed Oil
  • Toss in cooled noodles, pour over some Liquid Mixture and stir to mix. (I cooked the noodles in batches because there was too much to cook all at once. Try cooking half the noodles and only use half the Liquid Mixture). Keep moving the noodles and stir frying until hot and well coated with Liquid Mixture.
  • Dish up, Grab your Chopsticks and Enjoy!
